False Arrests in South Bay
Were you arrested without probable cause?
An arrest that is made by a law enforcement officer without probable cause can be reason to take legal action. False arrest lawsuits rely heavily upon the Fourth Amendment of the United States constitution, which states that citizens are protected against unreasonable search and seizure, thereby making it unconstitutional to be arrested maliciously or without reason.
False arrest lawsuits can be complicated and should only be addressed by an experienced South Bay police misconduct attorney. At The Layfield Law Firm, APC we are more than just a law firm. We are a team of legal professionals who:
